Applying for an extension of time via the Exceptional Extenuating Circumstances policy

text

In discussion with the HCPC, we have made modifications to our completion requirements and our exit assessment to allow the majority of our trainees to complete the programme despite the challenges posed by COVID-19. However, we recognise that there may be a minority of trainees who have faced particular challenges during this time. If you feel that your ability to complete the required training activities has been particularly challenging, you can consider applying for an extension of time via the Exceptional Extenuating Circumstances policy. The policy allows you to apply for changes to your training programme. This could include:

  • additional time to complete the training
  • deferral of training
  • step off training
  • a career break
